This person has left the following thank you note:

When I woke up this morning, I asked my for angels babies to look down on me, hug me, and kiss me and ask God to have mercy on my financial situation. Little did I know the power in my request nor did I know the impact checking my email would have on me until I logged into my account, checked my email from Modest Needs - Application funded. I knew the entire time that the funding of my application relied upon 'you' the donors. Donors, words can't express how grateful I am that 'you' understood the genuineness of my situation and need. My shoulders had great weight on them until the rent was lifted. Whatever 'you' and Modest Needs saw in my application - I can say I am truly thankful. My kids don't know the struggle, but I can say that tonight will be a better night's sleep for me and them. From the bottom of my heart - Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I know for certain that when I am financially able to take a donor position, Modest Needs will be my first investment. I love what you have done and what you are doing to help people that are temporary down on their luck and need just a push to get going again.

SIngle Mom Missed 3 Weeks Of Work Due To Surgery Needs Rent Help!

My Story:

I am a single mom of a 12-year-old daughter, 10-year-old son, and 8-month-old daughter. I do my best to take care of them, which at times is tough on one income, not allowing me to save much for emergencies. Last month I was hospitalized and had to have surgery. I missed three weeks of work and had nothing to fall back on. I used what I had left over for food and gas, and was set back on my rent.

I am turning to Modest Needs to get assistance with my past due rent. I have been at my residence for 13 years and although my landlord is like family to me, she counts on the monthly amount I owe. I am afraid that if I spend my checks to catch up, I would not be able to afford my transportation costs to get to work, or food. I know for certain that your help will put me on the right track, and without it I worry that this could cause a serious domino effect on my finances. I recently picked up a second job, and although I am anticipating another check soon, it will be a very small amount, and not enough to help me with this expense.

If my application is funded, as stated prior, the funds will without a doubt put me back on track and keep me there. My children are all I have and your help will ensure a roof over our head, and my ability to take care of them. I thank you greatly in advance!

As of 2012-10-11, this application has been fully funded!
